Marconi Stadium was built in 1972 with a capacity of 11,500. The stadium was originally built as home of the NSL club Marconi Stallions. The stadium has hosted rugby league internationals in the past, now Marconi Stadium hosts NSW Premier League matches the competition in which the Marconi Stallions FC compete in. Marconi Stadium hosted the 2006 NSW Premier League final between Sydney United FC and Blacktown City FC.
In November 2006 Berti Mariani ran for election to the board, on a platform of Marconi Stallions making a bid to join the A-League, and rebuilding Marconi Stadium into suitable venue. As Mariani was not elected, there are no current plans to rebuild the ground.
In October 2009, the stadium hosted the rugby league Mediterranean Cup.
The ground record crowd for Marconi Stadium was set in 1993 when 14,220 fans attended to see the Australian under-20's take on the Brazil under-20's side in a warm up game for the 1993 FIFA World Youth Championship held in Australia later that year.
The current capacity of the ground is reduced heavily, as two stands are disused by the club, one because it is unsafe terraces, the other because the ground foundations the eastern stand is located on have washed away. Mount Pritchard have purchased the stands themselves, but have yet to remove the stands.
